With the opening of the Sorauren Town Square last July, one piece of the Sorauren Park vision — dating from the late 1980s — remains: the proposed Wabash Community Centre on the old linseed oil mill property.
Come get a status update on the Wabash Community Centre project on Thursday, April 2 at the Sorauren Park Fieldhouse, starting at 7 p.m. Councillor Gord Perks along with community members will be in attendance.
This is public meeting also serves as the Annual General Meeting of the Wabash Building Society, your community non-profit in support of Sorauren Park and the community centre.
It’s a great opportunity for getting involved in community life. Refreshments will be served.
The 10th annual Sorauren Park Pumpkin Parade, Toronto’s original, is set for Saturday, Nov. 1 at Sorauren Park, the day after Halloween.
Bring your jack-o-lantern to the park and line it up along the path. Join the hundreds who’ll be out to admire amazing pumpkin art of all kinds on parade. The event kicks off at sundown and goes through the evening.
The parade started in 2004 when a few neighbours brought their jack-o-lanterns to the park and arranged for Parks staff to pick up the pumpkins the following day for composting. Now, upwards of 2,000 lit pumpkins line the path.
Huge thanks to City staff for support of the parade over the years.

Please walk, bike or take transit to the park… it can get busy and the streets are narrow. See you at the park!
